The below picture is what it feels like to be in my body. No kidding…the psychiatric drug brain injury opened me up to intense sensitivities and this piece of amazing artwork expresses what it’s like. We are not alone in this experience. Many people are being greatly challenged in similar fashion. Learning to interpret all these sensations can be overwhelming. I am grateful that people everywhere are getting clued into this reality. We need only pay attention. Then we not only start to learn about the mystery that we are living we also start to find one another. Awareness is key. It’s time to wake up. We all have great wisdom locked inside.

“There is a wealth of information built into us … tucked away in the genetic material in every one of our cells … without some means of access, there is no way even to begin to guess at the extent and quality of what is there.” – Alexander Shulgin
“If the door of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to a man as it is, infinite.” – William Blake

In celebration of my wondrous body:
My body is teaching me to get healthy. No one else knew how to do that. It’s a celebratory wonder.
My body has only ever wanted my attention…it’s always been about survival and evolution and healing…and it leads to freedom.
The body’s capacities are awe inspiring and it’s so sad too…what we do to our bodies…shutting down these incredibly intelligent creatures
I’ve been sick since I was a child. Getting healthy is the most exciting thing I’ve ever done. I had no idea what was available with health.
The treatment from day one made sure I’d be sick my whole life. That began with excessive and unnecessary long-term antibiotic treatments.
I am having problem containing my glee as my body and mind starts feeling and understanding what health and well-being can actually be like.
Most significantly I didn’t know I was sick. I thought I was healthy. Many Americans are like this and have no idea that they are not well.
We live in a world where substandard health is considered normal and even healthy and therefore most people simply don’t realize it.

The guru is within…
You are your own teacher, guru, healer
Be the medicine the world needs you to be
Consider the possibility that sensitive folks are not mentally ill
